Homemade Blackened Seasoning

This easy-to-make recipe is ideal for blackening fish, chicken or various other meats. This traditional way of searing your meat has been popular since the 80's, probably due to the late celebrity chef Paul Prudhomme's famous blackened redfish.

Makes about 10 tbsp

4 tbsp smoked paprika (or regular paprika)
3 tbsp dried oregano
2 tbsp black peppercorns
2 tbsp dried basil
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tbsp onion powder
4 tsp cayenne pepper
2-3 tsp salt
2 tsp fennel seeds
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 tsp mustard powder

tbsp = tablespoon
tsp = teaspoon


  • Grind the peppercorns, cumin and fennel seeds and salt

  • Once ground add to a bowl

  • Add the mustard, paprika, onion, garlic and cayenne pepper to the bowl and combine well.

  • Finally, crumble in the dried oregano and basil and combine again

That's all there is to it!

How to Toast and Grind

Dry toasting and grinding spices is the key to getting the most flavour out of your ingredients and into your home cooking...

Step 1: Add your whole spices to a dry pan over a low to medium heat and whilst stirring or shaking the pan, lightly toast them for a few minutes. When you can really smell the aromas and they start to darken, they're ready.

Step 2: Let them cool and then grind.

Step 3: For a finer blend, put them through a sieve before combining with any ground ingredients and herbs.
